The ionization of O2 was investigated by using charge exchange in a double mass spectrometer. The breakdown graph was constructed. A break in the electron impact ionization efficiency curve is explained as being due to ion- molecule reactions between excited O(+) ions formed in an ion-pair process, and O2. It is shown that the cross sections must be very small for the reaction O(+) (quadruplet-S) + O2 to O + O2(+) since the cross sections for the corresponding reaction with Si(+) are small....

Pulsed laser measurements on as-grown and thermally processed gallium arsenide show a material dependent photoconductivity. The pulsed voltage measurements on as-grown material provide evidence of a gain mechanism. An understanding of the photocurrent gain on the nature of the bulk gallium arsenide may be useful in explaining the lock-on phenomenon and in designing high power GaAs photoconductive devices.

LONG TERM GOALS. This work seeks to develop methods that can identify the genetic affinities among bloom forming diatoms in the ocean. The development of diatom blooms significantly modifies the optical properties of the surface waters yet their occurrence in the open ocean is difficult to predict. Frequently in high latitude oceans, blooms are absent from regions that have abundant nutrients and light. This work focuses on the biological basis for the occurrence of blooms so that the dynamics...

A mosaic of experimental data accumulated during the last year or two indicates that when operated in the electron injection mode AURORA can produce a very fast electromagnetic response in a large number of sensors. These fast responses are consistent with an electromagnetic environment in the AURORA test cell that has a very fast rise time. The electromagnetic parameters that have been measured and found to have rise times less than 10ns are the electric field and the magnetic field. The rise...

The current difficulties are seen as part of a traditional tension within NATO, not as result of the detente between USSR and the West. Two key factors explain the continuing unrest in the Alliance: (1) the high degree of institutionalization of the military pact in peacetime, and (2) the deep involvement of the Alliance with the unfinished business of World War II, divided Germany. These two elements also explain the cohesion of the Alliance. The author details the reasons for this paradox and...

A system wherein multiple engines exhaust into a common exhaust is analyzed on both a steady-state performance and transient response basis. A failure analysis of the system is also included. Engine to engine variations have been considered together with the effects of externally induced mismatches. It is concluded that maximum power is obtained by rating the engines on a T5 basis and trimming the exhaust area upon installation. It is shown that the greater the number of engines combined in a...

Hemorrhagic shock is a leading cause of death in combat, yet potentially survivable with early intervention. This is especially true in patients with head injury. Resuscitative measures, e.g., fluid therapy, can be lifesaving; however, delays in intravenous access and differential fluid responsiveness result in over- and under-resuscitation. Intrathoracic pressure regulation (ITPR) is an emerging technology used to treat hypovolemia and cardiac arrest. Preclinical trials demonstrate that ITPR...

Background. A large proportion of patients with amnestic mild cognitive impairment (MCI) convert to Alzheimer's disease (AD) and hence acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (ACheI) are commonly prescribed in patients with MCI though it is not FDA approved for this condition. Therefore, predicting which MCI patients are likely to improve cognitively with ACheI treatment is important. Hypotheses. 1. The acute decrease in UPSIT (Odor identification test) scores from pre- to post- atropine nasal spray...

The aim of this research is to develop a unified theory for perception and planning in autonomous ground vehicles, with a specific focus on obstacle tracking/identification and trajectory planning, so as to enable reasoned, intelligent planning rather than simple reactive planning. This final report details our contributions. First, we developed a new method for anticipating obstacle motion using Gaussian Processes in order to enable contingency planning. Second, we developed three new mapping...

Common Cyber Environment Representation (CCER) is an ontology for describing operationally relevant, and technically representative, cyber range event environments. Third-party ontology developers, as well as in-house ontology developers, contributed to CCER Ontology. Since the cyber range environments continue to evolve and expand, we expect the CCER Ontology also to evolve and expand. Therefore, an easy to comprehend versioning scheme that will support a systematic ontology evolution is...

In this document, we describe seven programmatic structures that can be leveraged to create game-based training materials. We describe the tradeoffs of the different development approaches, with the goal of helping agencies interested in serious games select an appropriate model for collaborating with partners. With an understanding of the possible collaboration models, we believe that agencies will be able to explore the use of game-based training with modest budgets and with a tolerable level...

The free surface condition of the surface wave is considered on the free surface itself instead of the mean free surface, by the use of a coordinate transformation, together with the scheme of a systematic expansion in a small parameter. Thus a higher order ship wave theory is developed. The most common practical case of a slender ship with an almost flat bottom is especially treated in detail. The lowest order result is the same as that given Michell's theory. The next higher order potential...

Because we live in an era of constantly increasing environmental controls that limit the use of natural and cultural resources for training, the DASA asked AEPl to examine policy options to ensure that the Army has access to adequate training land and airspace for the future. That study revealed that noise is a significant factor in training a ready Army. The origins of an Army Environmental Management Program can be traced to a Policy Memo, entitled Installation Compatible Use Zone (lCU2)...

The Lax finite difference method is used to compute the hydrodynamic flow which results from the initiation of a chemical reaction by a reflected shock wave. The chemical reaction is assumed to be irreversible and of first order; initial conditions are chosen such that negligible reaction occurs behind the incident shock front.

Analysis was made of five thousand two hundred measures of the polarized light of Mars, collected during the last nine apparitions of this planet, since 1948. The polarization curves for the bright and the dark areas of the planet are reproduced for each one of the apparitions. The variation of the polarization for the spectral range 1.05 to 0.45 micron is examined. A polarimetric and photometric study of selected samples of minerals indicated the presence, in the bright areas of the planet, of...
